The Gelly Bar

24 January 2019

The Gelly Bar is a super cute and quirky nail salon based at The Shore, the very heart of Leith in Edinburgh on the busy and stylish Salamander Street, a 10 minute walk from my flat luckily for me! 
The owner Leila Monroy is the brains behind the operation, a native of Spain Leila has created a nail empire in bonny Scotland with The Gelly bar and is most definitely a girl boss.  Leilas personality shines through her salon which is decorated perfectly with bubblegum pink tones and art deco features and you won't be short of things to talk about when getting your claws done. Our conversations went from Brexit to Justin Timberlake and hedgehogs- never a dull moment! Leila is also a national educator, at The Gelly Bar the team offer wide range of training where you can become a nail technician too at high standards, please email The Gelly Bar to get more information at 

I popped into The Gelly Bar yesterday afternoon for a gel manicure and a luxury pedicure and I've left feeling like my life is together. I met Leila and Shelby who are both so lovely and I feel like I've known them for years already. I got the most gorgeous star nail art as you can see above and was treated to an amazing pedicure by Shelby 
The Gelly Bar offer different treatments from nails, (AMAZING) pedicures, kids parties, Hen do’s and so much more. You can book with The Gelly Bar here or email them here although I have heard that an app is coming soon to make booking even easier!
